Cold weather for Philadelphia during the balance of this week will lead to additional spotty episodes of snow.

Indications are that winter will be in no hurry to leave. Waves of arctic air and the polar vortex sinking southward will make for a cold end to February and start to March.

Wednesday through Saturday, temperatures will then struggle or fail to reach the freezing mark. A high close to 46 F is more common in Philadelphia this time of year.

Brisk winds will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

During Tuesday, a fast-moving storm brought accumulating snow south of Philadelphia.

A storm was delivering a coating to an inch of snow on Wednesday. Additional weak systems could bring spotty snow on Thursday and Saturday.
